Complications

Different complications affecting multiple organs are being described with COVID-19. In fact, there is a higher risk of blood clotting when a patient has the virus. Other manifestations include arrhythmias, unsteady blood pressure, liver and kidney infections, and skin manifestations, especially on the fingers and toes. Also, severe cases can ultimately require ventilators, dialysis and even extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), devices that can potentially cause infections.
